Diet and Fitness Editor
Life & Style Weekly
Top Tier Media
"I've had the pleasure to work with publicist extraordinaire Megan O'Brien on dozens of magazine stories, and I couldn't have pulled them off without her. As the diet and fitness editor of Life & Style Weekly, I've repeatedly relied upon Meg's smart input and savvy client roster to produce weekly plastic surgery and diet coverage with a Hollywood peg. Meg seems to know everyone and always has a great insider tip to give. Somehow she manages to make her experts available when needed most, no matter how last-minute the deadline. She's also been stellar at supplying niche skin products for a feature called "Miracle in a Jar." Perhaps because she is a writer too, Meg is one of the rare PR people who truly "gets it" without wasting time. Not only does she anticipate an editor's needs, she can always be counted on to deliver."
"Meg is always effusive, and her pitches feel more like a conversation between friends rather than a formal publicist-editor meeting. Yes, wholly effusive, yet she knows what she's talking about and expertly answers questions. She's a rare breed. She embodies a breezy professionalism that is a joy to be around. I always look forward to meeting with her. She is also hilarious, which is no small thing when your day consists of meeting after meeting after meeting."

"I've worked with Meg for years, and she's great at keeping the latest from her clients on my radar. I know I can count on her; whether it's providing an expert for me to interview for a feature whenever I'm on a tight deadline, or to give me insider access to hot new products that readers have to have. Meg keeps me in the know!"
"Megan O'Brien is an absolute dream to work with! Not only does she know the realm of beauty inside and out, but she is also very well-connected in the world of media. I have always had a great time working with Megan on TV projects and in the style world. She is committed, dedicated, loyal, and someone you can trust while navigating through Hollywood. Plus, she can mix a mean vodka soda too!"

I have recommended Meg's PR services to many of my clients, and they have all been extremely pleased with the results. If your brand needs press, Meg should be the person you call."

"As a senior producer of the nationally syndicated TV show, EXTRA, I've worked closely with Megan O'Brien over the past few years. She's fun to work with, but more importantly she manages to bring the best products to EXTRA...and she works tirelessly to get the maximum exposure for her clients.

"Meg O'Brien has provided a constant flow of terrific marketing and publicity ideas for my Beverly Hills plastic surgical practice. Her media contacts have succeeded in placing my celebrity commentaries into major magazines on multiple occassions. Megan developed the idea of "Knive Styles of the Rich and Famous" which now runs in Life & Style and resulted in immediate exposure for my practice to its million weekly readers. Under her direction, we have developed a comprehensive marketing campaign that has led to major hits and effective social networking promoting my practice. I am beyond pleased with Megan's performance, work, and work ethic. There is no stopping her! Work with her and I'm sure you'll agree and find that she consistently over performs! "
